[(BG2) Bug] Ranger's Stealth score decreases between character-gen and game start (0813)

Current behaviour: At character generation, if you've elected to create a Ranger, the character's Stealth score can be seen displayed in the summary after proceeding past the Skills screen (e.g., for a DEX 13 human, the base score of 25 is shown). However, once the game has started, taking a gander at the character sheet reveals that the Stealth score has decreased by 3 points.

Expected behaviour: The Ranger's Stealth score shouldn't decrease between character generation and game start.

Games affected: BG2, BGEE.

Notes: The bug affects characters of all races, ability scores, and multi-class Cleric/Rangers, as well. Perhaps there's some sort of halving of some Move Silently or Hide in Shadows value occurring behind the scenes between character-gen and game start. BG1 is not affected by this bug.

    Here we have a splendid display of inconsistency. In character creation all stealth is based on what happens to the move silently stat, in level up there is a function that goes down a few layers of indirection and gets the move silently and hide in shadows skills and averages them while the character record just takes the move silently and hide in shadows that it has on hand and averages them.

    I had a typo in one of the 2DAs that was making this a bit more dramatic than it should have been. As it stands the number will be a bit weird compared to BG1 as the dex/race bonuses for hide in shadows and move silently are not equal.

    Potentially fixed - Stealth value is now consistent across CC, CR and LU

    Confirmed fixe - I started a ranger, its stealth value was displayed all the same in cg and record

    Confirmed Fixed in Build 0815

    Created a Ranger and its Stealth score did not change from CC to the actual game.
